Sims 4 download not working. [SOLVED] Empty Sims 4 download not working. [SOLVED]

Post by yesyseyesyessssys on Wed 01 Apr 2020, 03:04

Hello. I am very new to using torrents. I installed the base Sims 4 game today and the installation wizard says everything is fine (after I made it repair a few times). Before I installed the torrented game, I forgot to uninstall my legally purchased version, so I deleted the legal one and reinstalled the torrent. The still game refuses to load and only displayed message is "The contents of your user data directory were created by a newer version of The Sims 4 and cannot be loaded. Please update your game via Origin to play. [d6f91ffb]"

I am completely clueless as to how to fix this. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the G4TW Forums @yesyseyesyessssys,

You get the error because you played the legit base game version of The Sims 4, which is on a higher patch version than the cracked game. You can fix the issue easily by going under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 and then delete the GameVersion.txt. Then your game should start, though I'm not sure if you can properly use savefiles (created with the higher-patch-version game of The Sims 4). You might need to start a new save.

If you intend to add further updates or DLC, I suggest you familiarize yourself with this format here:

Good luck for now and have fun!
